Melvin Gordon, RB

Melvin Gordon is one of the newest additions to the Broncos lineup, and they love him. He spent last year sitting out the first half of the year because the Los Angeles Chargers wouldn’t give him the contract he wanted and he didn’t want to get hurt.

When the offseason came, the Chargers still chose not to give him any money, and instead, he took a massive contract from the Denver Broncos. The Broncos proved to the league that Gordon was still the player we saw in Los Angeles.

Throughout his first year in Denver, Gordon has rushed for 122 times in 10 games. That averages out to 12.2 rushes per game. He has definitely made the most out of that with 523 rushing yards and six touchdowns.

He also adds 20 receptions for 87 yards and one touchdown through the air. The Saints haven’t had too much trouble with opposing running backs, but if they sleep on Gordon, he could end up coming and biting them for that.
